She mentioned the important role of the mobile ID technology in the process of formation and development of e- and m-government in the country. According to her, usage of “Asan İmza”, which is the securest e-identity technology in the world, prevents any cases of unauthorized access of personal data of mobile ID users in the electronic environment, since all data required for activating any service via mobile ID is known only to the mobile ID user. She also informed about her company’s activity towards popularization of the Azerbaijani mobile ID & strengthened e-signature service - “Asan İmza” globally by means of participation at influential conferences and exhibitions around the world under the innovative brand of “Made in Azerbaijan”.

Thus, a project on introduction of mobile e-signature based on Azerbaijani “Asan İmza” in Ukraine has been lately completed and announced, which is expected to create new opportunities in terms of launching cross-border e-services between these two states.
The conference participants were informed about completed and ongoing projects of integration of “Asan İmza” service with the tax, customs, finance and education spheres.
It is worth to mention that at present the “Asan İmza” service successfully functions within the single e-government concept in Azerbaijan and is being more widely used in the electronic systems of private service providers such as banks, insurance companies, online payment portals and etc.
